    Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff:

    During the COVID-19 crisis we have heard the terms “heroes” and “front line workers” mentioned over and over again. Let there be no doubt that the doctors, nurses and hospital staff have been doing a heroic job fighting this virus and saving lives. They have witnessed dozens, even hundreds of deaths, with families not able to be by their loved one’s side to say a final goodbye.

    There are other heroes in our country we should always remember and thank – the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. They stood on the front lines of war and many laid down their lives to keep America free and to protect our citizens. Monday, (May 25) is Memorial Day, a day set aside to honor our veterans, our heroes. Please take some time to think about and honor our armed forces. Hang an American flag, wear red, white and blue, thank a serviceman or woman. You’ll be glad you did.

    On May 22 (Friday), each member of the Class of 2020 received a special gift from a Niagara Falls City School District teacher for “Adopt a Senior Day.” Teachers dropped off gifts to seniors at their homes to a graduate they personally selected to “adopt.” The Class of 2020 has been a joy to celebrate, and we want to continue to make your year special.

    Please note that the registration room will be closed on Monday (5/25) for Memorial Day, and Tuesday (5/26) to be utilized for voter registration. The room will be open again for registrations next Wednesday (5/27).

    Please be safe this weekend. There will be a lot of temptation to forget about the safety measures intended to keep the coronavirus at bay. Make sure you keep following the guidelines of frequent handwashing, social distancing and wearing face coverings. Social distancing will probably be the hardest guideline to adhere to this weekend, but you can do it! Have a happy and safe Memorial Day and again, please take time to remember all who have served our country in the armed forces. Thank you and stay safe and be well.

    Mark Laurrie, Superintendent
